Attorney Smith has also handled and argued appeals of major felony convictions including in cases ranging from misdemeanors to homicide. He has handled scores of appeals, many of which have made new law in Massachusetts. For instance, he argued the first racial-profiling automobile stops case to be decided by the state’s highest court, The Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court. This one of the very first such reported cases of its kind in the country to be litigated in any state’s highest court. He also argued to that same Court a seminal case pertaining to the constitutionality of the state’s sex offender registry board’s hearings process.

Drunk Driving (OUI, DUI, DWI)

In Massachusetts, operating a vehicle while under the influence (OUI) of alcohol or drugs is against the law and is taken very seriously in the District Courts. In recent years, it has become increasingly difficult for citizens charged with drunk driving to receive a fair trial due to growing public pressure to make the laws in this area more and more onerous.

Punishments, penalties and consequnces of OUI (drunk driving) convictions in Massachusetts include, but are not limited to:

• Jail time (including mandatory minimum jail sentences for certain subsequent offenders)
• Loss of drivers license
• Vehicle impounded
• Probation
• Court ordered driver alcohol education programs (and their associated expenses)
• Substantial fines and court fees
• Drastically increased insurance costs
